Doris Duke Foundation renews funding
We’re pleased to report that the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation has renewed its support of the Fussy Baby Network with a three-year, $1.3 million grant.
The grant will support services to approximately 2,000 families in the Chicago area; strengthen activities to address the dual risk of maternal depression and infant crying; expand our national network to six sites, including sites which will adapt the model for inclusion in primary care; and increase the evidence base for the model through an expanded outcomes evaluation.
